I am a maths graduate from St. Andrews University, living in Bristol. Since graduating I have tutored privately, offering one-to-one lessons.
Eight years tutoring all levels of high school curriculum. Many of my students have gone on to attain A grades from a struggling start.
I maintain an interest in school work and classroom teaching to ensure that lessons compliment and enhance teaching already in place. In general I like to teach from past papers to familiarise the student with the final exam while providing relevant questions that are likely to appear in the student's own exam. I frequently group questions by topic to ascertain which subjects are proving difficult so we can focus on questions dealing with that topic.
In mathematics, one correct answer can be obtained by more than one method. Unless specified, as long as students are clear in their workings, the student may reach the answer using any one of these methods. I strive to follow the classrooms teachings first and foremost, but if the student is struggling using one method, or simply thinks in a different way, I often suggest another way (or at least, another way of thinking about what is often the same method).
Lessons take place in my home, or I can travel to you.
